Our approach is designed to provide the highest quality service tailored to the needs of your organization. We partner with you throughout the entire search process, building a meaningful relationship so that we can help you navigate the often-challenging moment of organizational transition while finding the candidate with the expertise you need who also fits with your culture and values.

We listen carefully to understand your needs

  • We conduct an extensive site visit during which we meet with key individuals and groups whose knowledge, position and perspective can contribute to an in-depth assessment of the position and the organization.

  • We write a detailed and compelling description of the position and the organization for broad distribution to individuals and organizations nationwide.

  • We work with you to develop an effective search strategy tailored to your needs, including timeline, compensation guidelines, advertising and networking plan.

  • We establish a fee for our services up front, so that we have no financial stake in the final salary negotiation.
